The companies included in the Top 50 Fastest Growing Companies were selected by conducting an initial search of FAME for companies with registered offices in Sandwell. We took the fastest growing 50 companies by turnover, based on the most recent filed accounts.

To produce the financial information we analysed the data contained within FAME, with no consolidation adjustments. Depending on the accounts filed, some of our figures will be based on consolidated accounts and some on entity-only accounts. In addition, some of the financial information will be based on UK generally accepted accounting principles accounts and others will be based on International Financial Reporting Standards accounts. The financial information in this report has been compiled exclusively from publicly available information under the key assumptions and limitations outlined in the first two paragraphs.
